hey people! my name is gabriel, i'm 13 years old and i love octopus. I've done a load of research on keeping an octopus in an aquarium and all. I would like to start off with the O.Bimaculoides and yeahh. I have an aquarium, i got it used, the previous owner had an octopus in it so i know it's a reliable size. The aquarium came with all the filtration and stuff. I'm really exited, but I would like to know just how to set the aquarium up for a bimaculoides octopus precisely because i want it to live a happy life. And if anyone has any tips on exactly how to clean the carcasses and remains of the crab/shrimp or octopus food please tell me because i would really love to keep my tank as clean as possible and free from rot so my octopus will be healthy and last. Are there any corals that are recomended? plants? rocks? if so, where can i get them and how much will they cost. If i'm missing anything please tell me what else i need and how much it would cost. I have heard the bimac is the best way to start off, but if anyone has any other recomendations feel free to share them. thank you!
